For the eighth successive year all 183 Year 11 students at Brooke Weston achieved five or more GCSEs graded at A* to C. 37 per cent of all exams taken were awarded A* or A grades and more than half of the year group secured five or more of these top-graded GCSEs.

Both genders performed equally well, bucking the trend highlighted by the Office for National Statistics showing that girls tend to out-perform boys at this level.

Core skills are crucial and 99 per cent of students secured two or more A* to C science GCSEs whilst 84 per cent achieved five or more GCSE passes including English and mathematics. On average students attained 15 GCSEs.

In addition to achieving a number of GCSE qualifications, 20 students secured the top graded A Level equivalent in eBusiness two years early, while 31 Year 10 fast-track scientists gained over 40 A* and 33 A grades in chemistry, biology and physics, having started their courses earlier than their peers. The youngest to celebrate was a Year 9 student who gained an A* graded language qualification.

Students are always encouraged to sit their examinations when they are academically ready rather than waiting to sit their GCSEs or A Levels at the end of Year 11 or Year 13.

Principal Trish Stringer said: ‘Once again this is a day to celebrate the achievements of all our students. It is not only those in Year 11 who are celebrating, but students in Years 9 and 10. As always, I am extremely grateful to the staff who consistently provide the highest quality teaching and support, which enables all students to achieve their full potential’
